Introduction to MiM at Stockholm

Do you love meeting new people and cultures, leading and collaborating, inspiring and being inspired by talented professionals from different backgrounds? Welcome to SSE’s Master of Science program in International Business!

The MSc in International Business provides you with the tools to master the challenges of management and strategy in global organizations. The program combines advanced analytical training with active learning in real projects together with SSE’s and CEMS’ corporate partners. Upon admission to the MSc program in International Business candidates are pre-approved to the CEMS MIM program.

You will work on an advanced level with topics focused on running and developing global organizations. SSE uses strategy and marketing tools to put the firm in context and explore how firms influence their competitive environments. You also learn how to make firms grow and prosper from the inside, through innovation and management practices that build operational excellence. Ultimately, you will learn how to improve organizations and the things they do.

The first year of the program is completed at SSE, where you will mix classes in global management, led by some of the most competent professors in the field, with corporate finance, international projects, an international immersion internship, project assignments with corporate partners, an international business research thesis and a CEMS international internship in the summer.

During the second year of the program, students do their CEMS year or participate in another exchange program. Students who decide not to do CEMS can apply to another exchange program and spend the fall semester abroad at one of our partner schools.

The CEMS students attend a one-week intensive block seminar to kick-off the fall and take a CEMS core course in global strategy. They spend either the fall or the spring semester at one of the CEMS partner schools. All MIB students take global management practices, and choose from a selection of elective courses. Students also conduct a business project during the spring term, which combined with the MIB research thesis during the first year meets the Master thesis requirement.

The elective courses allow you to tailor parts of the program to fit your own aspirations and interests. To deepen your existing knowledge in a specific area, you can select advanced courses in economics, accounting, finance or marketing including courses offered as part of the Data Analytics Track.

What is a good GMAT score for MiM at Stockholm?

Short Answer – The average GMAT score is 660 for the last entering class. If you score above 660, you have a fair shot and you will receive an encouraging response to your profile evaluation from the admission committee. 

Long Answer – There is no such thing as a safe score, higher is always better. In our years of consulting experience, we have seen our clients with 640 getting selected into top schools like INSEAD and on the other hand, someone with a 770 getting rejected too. A good benchmark that we advise all our clients to beat is the average GMAT score of the last entering class as mentioned in the Class profile published every year. Scoring above the average gets you a fair shot; 

“The higher your score, the better is it for your interview or admission chance.” 

If you plan to apply with a score that is below the average, then you are starting a fight with one hand tied behind your back or, let’s say, you are starting a few yards behind your competitors. You can definitely catch up in other sections of the application by writing outstanding essays or performing really well in an interview later. But it is always nice to start ahead of the competitor. A higher GMAT score helps one gain a competitive advantage.

“What if you are from the over represented Indian or Asian Pool?”

The over-represented candidate pool of Indian or Chinese applicants usually goes through a rigorous preparation process for GMAT, with a lot of Indian applicants scoring quite high. Hence, the overall competition and the Average score for this diaspora goes up by a few notches. That is why we recommend candidates within the most over-represented profiles to shoot at least 20 points higher than the school’s class profile average.
